Alcatraz: Prison Escape is a first-person survival video game with action elements. It was developed by Zombie Studios and was published by Activision Value. The game was released worldwide on November 23, 2001 exclusively for the Microsoft Windows platform. Players control a falsely accused person as he attempts to escape five different types of prisons in order to prove his innocence in the outside world. Players have to sneak past guards in order to make it through every prison level. If seen, an alarm is rung that forces players to hide temporarily.
The name of the title was kept under wraps until late in the development cycle; causing the programming team to create a makeshift Alcatraz level by inserting fog horns, seagulls and an crudely drawn Golden Gate Bridge.
